Dadi Janki – 21st November 2012 – Gyan Sarovar (Meeting IPIP Guests)
Just do as God says and you won’t need to think
Science and silence are opposites. So many things have been invented in the last 100 years and some of these inventions have shaken all the 5 elements. Oceans have dried up, land has been reclaimed and the earth on all 5 continents is being used by human beings. No land remains in its pure state. It is also believed that we can create a world out there in space. Just as science can do wonders, silence can work miracles. Using silence we now have to help finish all the falsehood and violence in the world with the support of truth and non–violence. So, what do I have to do now? In fact, we don’t need to ask ‘how’ because God has told us everything we have to do clearly. All I have to do is to use the word ‘now’ and do it. We know what we have to do and so just look in the mirror and see what it is that you personally have to do.
There is so much happiness that comes by following a life filled with truth. The one who is honest is automatically coloured by the colour of Baba’s light. Make your intellect completely still and completely stable. Ones who think too much (chintan) and one who worries (chinta) can never be happy. Just continue to do good deeds. Understand what a good deed is and then do it. Do not perform wrong actions. Very good decision power is needed. Take a second and decide this is what I want to do and this is what I have to do. Don’t over think and don’t waste your time in worrying. Don’t waste your time in questioning whether you can create such a beautiful, simple life for yourself. Remain happy and then others can receive that happiness from you. Just think, “I belong to God. He is with me, so when God is with me what is there to worry about’?! Perform good actions and you will continue to receive whatever you need. There will be no need to ask for anything. Do good with one hand and you will automatically receive with the other. Don’t think whether it is possible for you to do charitable actions – just do it and do it now! When we think too much we pollute our minds with our own thoughts and the dictates of others. There is a difference between thinking too much and contemplating on something. It is now time to do things in a practical way. Those who do things in a practical way are loved. Our conduct should be the same as our thinking.
Open your eyes and ears and think deeply and you will know the right thing to do. Do you get distracted? If you can’t concentrate you won’t hear what even God is saying to you. Your mind will wander, you will feel bored, you will start looking at your watch. It is time to learn these time spiritual aspects. It is time to then go on and share them with others. Without over thinking, pay a lot of attention. Have a lot of attention on the self and you tension will then finish. Put “a” in front of tension and there is no tension. “A” is for atma and so become soul conscious. Actually, this is a very simple path. There is no need to think too much. Keep courage and the Father will help. Never say that you can’t do something, that no one will help you or that you don’t have enough money. Dadi’s experience is that she has always received help from up above, from our Father, the Master of everyone. If we are affected by a situation then the Father is not present. In Hindi, it is said that where there is the “bat” there is not the “Bap”. When I am connected to the Father and absorbed in Him, then I am not distracted by the situation. This is the unshakeable faith that is needed. Instead of thinking too much, plant the seeds of courage, faith and honesty. These were the seeds that were planted in the early days and the fruit is that you are sitting here as a result.
The Lord is pleased with an honest heart. If you have made a mistake ask for forgiveness but from now onwards don’t make further mistakes. Sometimes, due to bad company, we may become influenced and commit a wrong deed. I only want to perform deeds that make Baba happy with me. Firstly, when I perform good deeds I become happy- it is an incognito happiness, and seeing me others also want to do good deeds and as a result of this I get blessings. Then one doesn’t get bored but instead I want to do more good deeds. The good deeds then bring blessings and again Baba would say it is everyone’s blessings that enable you to move forward. Don’t ask for blessings but know and understand that there are many blessings in blessings. Blessings do a lot of work
Secondly, I wish to do good deeds. It is as though there is an inner enthusiasm to do good deeds. Do intense meditation and then do service from the heart. With real renunciation your intellect will not be pulled anywhere and you will not want anything. Attachment and greed will then leave you. You will not become upset or disturbed and you will become a beautiful flower and seeing you others will become the same. Don’t think too much and let many benefit from your fragrance. Rethink your mindset. Set your mind and then there is no need to think about it any more. I have set my mind and this is what I am going to do. Have faith in yourself, faith in others and faith in Baba. These are deep subtle aspects. If you think too much you waste a lot of time. To ask, to get confused and to get agitated is all a waste of time. You get the right touching at the right time to do the right things. You have children and work etc but remain detached. Stay pure, don’t think too much and stay clean. Whatever I need to do, I need to do it now. You belong to the Father and so always remain loving and detached. Om Shanti
Gems from Dadi Janki on 22 Nov 2012
Madhuban is truly content today as we will be welcoming Dadi Gulzarji to Shantivan in the afternoon, of the day of the Satguru. A chartered flight will bring Dadiji comfortably home at around 1.00pm. Everyone is giving Dadiji lot of loving good wishes for a smooth arrival. It's been nearly two-and-a-half months since Dadiji and Neeluben were last in Abu.
Dadi Janki was sharing some insights on her special topic with IPIP guests: Don't Think. Many ask Dadi, 'how can we not think especially when one has to make important decisions, plan for efforts/service...' There is a subtle difference between thinking and contemplating on something. When Dadi says don't think, Dadi means avoid engaging in unnecessary thoughts of 'will it happen or not? what will happen...' and various doubt-filled paths. How many times does Baba or someone advise us to do something and we get lost in questions. That is not constructive thinking. BKs often share how meditation has helped change their mind-set. Dadi says, first 'set your mind' and then think. Keep the intellect clean and the line clear, and then come into the space of thinking or decision-making. Many times souls say, how did Dadi or so-and-so senior know what we were thinking? It must happen to all of you as well. When we are still inside, and inner silence is our companion, then the atmosphere we create subtlely has a cooling effect on self and others. Clarity and transparency are seen in communication and relationship.
Some contact souls say, 'we can't understand the philosophy of God, but we like the atmosphere here... we can't understand knowledge, but we need this type of good atmosphere...' When we have built the foundation of a good atmosphere (filled with lightness and happiness), then we don't have to think too much but whatever is natural will emerge; whatever is good will happen. This is why Baba speaks so much about staying in 'satsang: company of truth'. So appreciate and enjoy this satsang.

Become a mine of experiences
Baba gives those who sit for bhog very good experiences. Have you become a mine of experiences? Now let go of ‘mine’ (mera) and become a mine of all treasures. Baba would always say there is a huge difference between the ‘mine’ of possessions and the ‘mine’ of all treasures.
The essence of all knowledge is to become free of all ego of ‘me’ and all attachment of mine. It’s absolutely certain now that there’s very little time left bring about the real change that’s necessary in ourselves.
My Baba knows me and I know Baba. Nothing is hidden from Baba and I shouldn’t hide anything from Him.
At the recent Inner Peace, Inner Power retreat in Gyan Sarovar many wrote of their very good experiences, of how they knew that they had found God and there was now no need to go to any other pilgrimage place.
It’s no longer a question of asking ‘how? Now is the time for receiving everything. No matter how much business you do, make sure you are do not become ‘busy’. This is easy Raja Yoga, with which everything becomes easy. Those who experience the auspicious omens of Jupiter over them are free from worry – they don’t worry about anything and they don’t cause anyone else worry.
Dadi Gulzar and I were talking about ‘asochta’ (free from thoughts) and ‘abhoghta’ (beyond the effect of karma) and the connection between them. When I amasochta, I am able to perform elevated actions and so I do not experience any suffering, thus I am abhogta.
Create a stage of easiness and lightness, so that you first become close to Baba and then equal to Baba. Become so like the Father that all feelings of conflict, jealousy and defamation disappear entirely.
Dadi has the photo of Baba with His hand on her head in front of her. Dadi wants each one of you to experience having your hand in Baba’s hand and Baba’s hand on your head.
Dadi never wants to miss meeting the world family on Thursdays. We are now ready to welcome Dadi Gulzar back to Madhuban and so lots of love and remembrances to you all from Dadi Gulzar too. Baba has given us wonderful sustenance through the chariot of Dadi Gulzar. When we keep all the sustenance we’ve received from Sakar and Avyakt Baba in front of us, our feet won’t touch the ground - and that’s how we become angels. It’s that easy.
There is such a lot of service taking place all over the world. Now is the time for us to give experiences through the angelic stage. Just keep flying on Baba’s flying carpet, as you travel around the world on Godly service.
